As if we haven’t had enough of entry-level digital cameras in the market today, Olympus is adding two more new models in its FE-series of digital cameras with the FE-360 and FE-370. Fortunately for us, the standards for entry-level cameras continue to improve hence we are assured of getting more goodies from these types of digital cameras. This is true for the FE-260 and FE-270 which both feature a decently high 8-megapixel CCD sensor.
In terms of individual features and specs, both cameras are almost similar with a minor difference in optical zoom range, with the FE-260 having 3x optical zoom and the FE-370 having a higher 5x optical zoom capability. Aside from these, the FE-360’s optical zoom is complemented by 20 custom shooting modes while the FE-370’s optical zoom is well complemented by its large 2.7-inch high-resolution LCD.
Other features of the FE-360 worth noting is its 0.7-inch slim metal body, 2.5-inch LCD, 64-1000 ISO sensitivity, 4x digital zoom, xD picture card and microSD support and 20MB of internal memory. For its part, the FE-230 kicks out some other great features as well, including dual image stabilization, TruePic III Image Processor, Intelligent Auto Mode, Smile Shot feature that triggers the shutter when a subject smiles, Expression Edit, high ISO sensitivity of up to 3200, xD Picture Card and microSD support and 49MB of internal memory.
The FE-360 and FE-370 will be available later this month at a very affordable $149.99 and $199.99 respectively. Both cameras will come in red, blue, pink, black or silver.
